    Corsa B 1999 CDX 1.4 16v

    Well it's taken me a while but I've finally got round to starting my own project thread, and here it is!

    I'm Sam, 21 from Southampton. I've had two Corsas so far, my first was a 1998 Corsa B Breeze 1.2 16v, which was unfortunately written off at the beginning of 2008 (multi car pile up on the motorway - I was in the middle and not at fault, but was the only one who didn't manage to drive away !) I now have a 1999 Corsa B CDX 1.4 16v which I love to pieces. I've done a few bits and pieces so far - mainly focussing on audio, but also changing the appearance a bit:

    Interior Mods

    Chrome Tax Disc Holder

    Blue MFD LED Bulbs

    Blue Speedo and other Dial Bulbs

    Blue Clock Bulbs

    Custom Tailored Corsa B Car Mats

    Central Third Brake Light on Rear Windscreen

    Exterior Mods

    Debadged Chrome Front Grill

    Chrome Number Plate Surrounds

    Signal Boost TV Aerial

    Mods in Progress/Unfinished Mods

    Blue Footwell Neons (now done)

    New Black Leather with White Stitching Gear Stick and Hand Brake Gaitors (now done)

    Gear Knob with Built in Switches (for interior and boot neons)

    Custom Door Speaker Pods/Builds (now done)

    Lowered 40mm (now done)

    Irmscher Airdam Rear Bumper (now done)

    All Round Colour Code - door handles, boot lock surround, bump-strips,roof tracks,and arches. (now done)

    Planned Mods

    New Front Lights - Angel Eyes?

    New Rear Lights (now done)

    De-Badge (now done)

    Bad Boy Bonnet (now done)

    Irmscher Front Airdam with Fogs (now done)

    Passenger and Driver Rear Quarter and Rear Window Tints (quoted ?115)

    Blue Boot Neons (now done)

    New Exhaust - Irmscher twin back box? (now done)

    Woo CDX ftw! You have my wheels, less scuffed than mine though But why does yours have rear headrests when mine doesnt?

    Anyway, nice car mate. Not too decided on the grille tbh, I think a plain black debadged one would look better.

    Really nice car mate apart from the grill and the wipers. If you change those to black ones, it would look a whole lot less tacky mate.

    yeah, i was going to go for a black grill and wipers etc, but nothing else on the car is going to be black - it will all be colour coded, so went down the chrome route, might still change eventually but we'll see

    Car looks well mate. As mentioned, chrome wipers and grill make it look cheap which this car isnt going to be if you do it right. Replace the wipers with some flat blades and bin the chrome grill in favour of a black one. Colour code plans are spot on mate. Cant beat a colour coded arden corsa. Exhaust wise I would stick with a single exit as twins tend to looks bad on corsa B's, the best to go for are a round 3" exit or a 5x3 oval. Irmy softstars would look very nice aswell. Only other thing I would suggest is replacing the door cards and seats with a sport or club interior. Will look very nice indeed if you stay away from the temptations of halfords.

    I think the interior he has got is the best you get rear head rests ok the front seats aint perfect but the reear head rests bring the corsa up to date. same interior as mine

    Thanks mate, i'm quite fond of my interior. but would love leather...

    so today - had an absolute nightmare, serious panic...!!!

    attempted to fit interior (footwell) neons on tuesday but failed miserably (cheap ****ty set from ebay lol) ended up taking so many things apart to get to wiring, head unit, ciggy adapter etc. gave up in the end and went round the missus place lol. i didn't listen to music on the way as it's only round the corner and couldn't be bothered to find the front panel of my head unit. didn't use the car much yesterday so again no head unit. today trided to use it.... nothing. it was dead. i pulled the whole centre unit apart trying to find the fault, had hundreds of cuts on my hands, bruises on my head (corsas are not designed to be easy to work upside down in!!!) and could not fix it at all. i was devastated as that head unit is amazing. so i gave it up as a bad job, ebayed for a new one (?300+ !!!) and decided to order it tomorrow i went back out into the car and decided to have another crack at the neons. this time i succeeded (woo!) and they look top notch

    so i had a football match tonight, went to that, have just got back and OMG my fcuking head unit has decided it's absolutely fine now grrrr!!! obviously i'm glad i'm saving so much money by not having to replace it but why do cars scare you like this???!!!! lol. so yeah basically a bad couple of days that actually ended well!!!

    oh - pics of neons, boot light and other little bits will be on here either tonight or tomorrow i hope

    you probably checked this but did you check the fuse? head units are really easy to short out and could save you 300 pound
